Particulars, modes and universals: An examination of E.j. Lowe's four-fold ontology

Dialectica 58 (3):317–333 (2004)
Abstract
Is there a particular‐universal distinction? Ramsey famously advocated scepticism about this distinction. In “Some Formal Ontological Relations” E.J. Lowe argues against Ramsey that a particular‐universal distinction can be made out after all if only we allow ourselves the resources to distinguish between the elements of a four‐fold ontology. But in defence of Ramsey I argue that the case remains to be made in favour of either the four‐fold ontology Lowe recommends or the articulation of a particular‐universal distinction within it. I also argue that the case remains to be made against a spatio‐temporal conception of the particular‐universal distinction
